A Lunch Date ~


Because my darling husband works sometimes long, wild hours at a hospital, I like to go visit him for lunch once a week or so...we'll just go someplace in town, or eat in the cafeteria at his work amongst the other doctors, which feels very Grey's-esque if I do say. 

It's a pleasant drive, about 40 minutes each direction, so a nice, solitary lucuna to take. And I don't know how to explain it, but there's something so romantic about how when I pull up to the hospital, I am always nervous-excited to see him, breathless, like a first date. 

I like to prolong beautiful moments by drawing them out, by slowly poring over the tiny details, to preserve beautiful moments as if by capturing them in amber. And so, on these certain days, I've begun to hang my lunch date outfit on the little flowery sconce by my bed so I can pass by them throughout the morning, catch them softly at the edge of my eye. Maybe spritizing a tiny perfume or letting flowers imbue the threads with a bit of the magic air they breathe...

  1. I hope I can evolve enough to one day be as sweet and soft a wife as you (in the event I actually marry. ha.) I lean more to INTP than INFP but the tiny, beautiful, things you share online as part of your life just make the feminine side of my heart flutter! such a beautiful outfit, too. your pictures and writing are always so utterly womanly, it's just lovely. xx nina

  3. This is incredibly sweet. Fora time, my husband and I were long distance. It was a two hour drive, so it was manageable. We managed, at least. Like you, during those long drives, I would get so excited to see him. I think that excitement made all the lonely times worth it. xo
